And just like that, February came along. The month when I turn 24, aaah!
It’s Saturday again, the time to relax and do stuff you enjoy. I’m back today with a list of my favourite things from the past week, so definitely stay tuned if you want to discover some new things and links.
I’m one of those people that has their phone attached to their hand. I take it with me everywhere and use it all day, to check the time, talk to people and check social media. Now, of course I work in social media so it’s only logical I’d use it a little more than the average person, but lately I’ve noticed I’m using this as an excuse. Most of the time I spend on social media I consume content, not produce it. And my job is to produce, not consume. It would be really nice if I could spend some of the time I now spend refreshing Instagram, doing something else instead. Not necessarily work, but a different, more useful or fulfilling activity. I installed Quality Time on my phone, which is an app that tracks your phone activity, how often you pick up your phone, what apps you use and when… And then there’s also an option to take a break. You can program different types of “breaks” that block certain apps for a certain amount of time. Super helpful! I’m excited to see whether this helps me use my phone in a less time-wasting way.
First impression: I actually use my phone way less than I thought I did. Yay! Although that could just be because I’ve become more consious of my smartphone use since installing the app. Anyway, around two hours a day isn’t that bad at all. Right?
